    Facebook / Myspace has broken more relationships up than got people together

    this is ofcourse my anilisation of the subject but these social networking places in my eyes are dangerous ,...
    Been speaking to a few people of late off line who and now feeling the tention of people online doing alittle more than saying hi , if you get what i saying ... and its not just from 1 or 2 insome cases i was told over 10 attention seeking sexual messages a day that become to fullfill something that they werent getting in there everyday life due to work etc etc ... this ofcourse lead to a negative spiral in the offline relationship , harmless as it seemed and start off ended in tears infact one person i spoke to ended a relationship , packed his cases and now filing for divorce all because of this so called networking and peoples thoughts of "its harmles,what they dont know doesnt hurt them" ...

    anyway .... whats your views on it ... ive been on facebook for only 2 months and yeah , its been nice to speak with people i havent seen for over 20yrs of leaving school but fup me sideways its all bullshit ... just a breeding ground for people on line to say wow your fit and the closes your get to doing anything is "give them a poke" ,... rubbish ....

    its no wonder the people i spoke to were upset / pissed off ,... if your in a relationship why do you allow people to do so ,... anyway enough ramberling from me ...

    off to find a site that will host large gif's ......... :banana:

    some relationships don't need the help to break up, they're just doomed form the beggining. just that people don't see it. it's easy to blame outside influences and not so easy to examine yourself and say 'hey, you know what? it's my fault, i'm just not right for you and i should have been man enough to admit that before' or vice versa, of course.

    as for the online myspace/facebook flirting thing, then i don't really see that as a big problem. flirting's good for the soul and can make you feel good about yourself at a time when you need it. say at work and you're getting a hard time from your boss, just one little comment from someone can really brighten your mood. you just have to be mature enough to realise that, at the end of the day, it doesn't mean anything more than that.

    i see wot ur saying but its not because of the social networking, its because ppl r cunts
    saying mate but its not the social networking sites, its coz ppl are cunts

    and once u start adding every fit girl/guy (which ever way u swing) then of course ur gonna get muppets saying stuff, personally i've found facebook brilliant for 'social networking' but i've only got ppl i know, some dnb artists & a few off here, its nice havin all ur mates at the touch of a button & for free too!

    I've got a myspace, don't use it really though...

    I don't facebook, I just can't be arsed with it, if people want to get hold of me they can still do so at the touch of a button, it just so happens that the button is the green one on their phone...

    I pretty much keep in contact with everyone I want to anyways, so I can't see the point... Besides, I already spend waaaay to much time on here anyway, I really don't need to add more "things to distract Greg at work" stuff!

    I know a lot of people use facebook etc to try to get laid (I think they call it fuckhunting?), some of them successfuly, but that's not my thing, and not something I'm short of anyway, my girls is all I need, I'm genuinly not interested in anything other than friendship with other gals...

    I'll bet a lot of people have split up because of these sites though, I think they make it too easy for people to flirt and think they won't get caught, or that it doesn't count because it's online, but things really do lead from one thing to another very easily, especially when sex is involved!

    I've got a few mates who go gchatting/facebooking/myspacing when they've got the horn, even though they're successful, I just find it a bit... eeew...

    Anyone here been caught out with online flirting?

    I'm with Safety on that. If you're on a social network and you're finding out shady stuff from your GF or she's acting dodgy on that shit, it was doomed from the start.

    What I will say tho, is yeah - a little harmless flirting is good for the soul, but if you got an insecure gal or guy with self esteem issues (fit or not), social networks are tailored made for failures. That says more about the person than it does about the sites. I agree tho, Facebook is pretty decent to keep in touch.

    who is the cowbell guy - does anyone know?

    I always assumed he's out of 10cc or Average White Band or something, but then I realised I'd just made this up in my head...

    Firstly, I don't, unlike some people, think it's funny to find pictures of myself passed out in my underwear on the loo on facebook. Not particularly the image I want everyone in the world to see and it doesn't make me happy with who ever's posted the pic. I don't give a shit if it's may fault for getting in that state it shouldn't be projected over the net for all to see.

    Secondly, I went to specsavers and the guy behind the counter somehow found my details and added me on facebook around 6 or 7 times. Wtf? Seriously i go to book a fucking opticians appointment and end up with a stalker.
    Also had many random customers where I work asking me to be their 'internet friends'.

    Facebook can be incredibly sad if it's what you actually call your socialising but it's also incredibly useful, you've just got to be really fucking careful

    all you need is your name , as for stalkers rubbish , u can delete there permissions anytime without them knowing ... plus your own fault for not putting images not on private , or id someone else placed it up asking the to remove it via facebook themselves ... hence when u upload u agree to there permissions ? ....

    but agree with you there

    Will Ferrell is a fuckin' legend. Anchorman is a rudeboy film, funny as.
